Tiger Woods set a record for cuts made in Augusta

by admin

Augusta, Georgia — Tiger Woods hit the 2023 Masters like a passenger who jumped on a plane before the barrier door slammed shut, but he did the same thing. A late bogey of Woods’ friend Justin Thomas moved his cut streak from +2 to +3, allowing Woods to extend his cut streak to a record 23. Couples followed on 31, Gary Player on 30, then Raymond Floyd, Phil Michaelson and Bernard Langer on seventh. twenty.

Woods has never missed a cut since turning pro in 1997. His 23-game mark with Fred Couples (1983-2002) and player (1959-1982) is the all-time leader.

“I’ve always loved this golf course and I love playing this event,” Woods said after the round. “Obviously I miss a couple with a few injuries, but I always wanted to play here. I loved it.”

Friday weather moved the second round of the 2023 Masters tournament to Saturday morning. When play resumed, Woods appeared on the way to making the cut with ease after a 15-year-old birdie took him to +1. But an ugly bogey on the 17th and 18th in miserable rainy conditions forced him to wait and see if the arrangement would come his way.

“Hopefully I get a chance to play this weekend,” Woods said before learning the final results, then smiled and corrected himself. “I’m sorry. I had the chance to play at the weekend. I hope I’ll have the chance to play two more rounds.”

He would actually come out just hours after completing his second round. Notables who missed the cut included Sergio Garcia, Bryson DeChambeau, Bubba Watson, Thomas and Rory McIlroy.
